The bond-related formulas and functions in the previous chapters assume that every period is the same length. For example, that coupon payments occur every three, six, or twelve months. Some bonds have irregular first or last periods, where the payment dates don’t fit any of those patterns. When you want to calculate the price of a bond with an odd first period, use the ODDFPRICE function.
